Fantastic build! Wow-- thought I was looking at a colorized photo of the real thing for a moment! I was half expecting to see his trademark "bic lighter" in the pictures like he does for his really tiny dioramas-- guess he didn't need it for this one. I particularly like the way he does his water effect close to the hull.
